Anti corruption court chief magistrate Agnes Alum has granted a five million cash bail to state Minister for Labour , Employment and Industrial relations Herbert Kabanfunzaki.
The state minister has also been ordered to deposit his passport and two land titles that he owns with his wife in court until the case is dispossed.
The chief magistrate ruled that the minister had no criminal charges pending against him and that his surities were substantial.
The state had asked court to deny Hon.Kabafunzaki bail on grounds that he is likely to abscond once released and due to his status as an MP and state minister he might use it to interfere with witnesses.
However the magistrate dismissed their application saying court can not deny him bail on mere speculation.
